Student Involvement


Student Sustainability Board

The Sustainability Board is student group that focuses on environmental initiatives at Milton. The board operates on the belief that, as stewards of the earth, Milton students have a responsibility to be conscious of how lifestyle choices can have large-scale effects on the world. The board focuses on improving Milton’s sustainability, hoping to inspire large-scale environmental change on campus. The board’s initiatives range from small projects such as hosting informative morning assemblies to large projects such as implementing composting on campus and encouraging all students to avoid plastic water bottles and reduce their meat consumption. Thus far, the Sustainability Board has worked to::

  • Send all food waste from all dining halls to a composting facility.

  • Create an environmentally-friendly meal plan during Earth Week.

  • Educate students through announcements and games at assemblies.

  • Push to integrate environmental science and sustainability into the curriculum.

  • Offer compostable substitutes to the plastic utensils in the dining hall.

  • Outline and guide students’ recycling/reusing actions during the end of the year move-out.

  • Found the Independent School Sustainability Coalition (ISSC) of 20+ New England schools and host a conference.
